It is amazing how you can go from completely excited about buying to very Pis*ed off
I was finally able to pull the covers off my boat after buying it yesterday to see that I have a bad stringer on the pass side of the boat since the engine bolts pulled into the stringer and down. I guess the vibration from trailering her home from Saginaw to Livonia caused it to brake. I inspected the stringers but I guess not good enough.
I am looking for advise on where to go from here as it appears I have to gut the boat now and cut out the stringer/stringers from what I have read in here. I did post about this last night in another thread and a guy came up with an idea using metal on both sides of the stringer to run bolts thru to my mount to get me thru the season. Below is the thread
Let me know what you guys think.
